    Amazing first Drone

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I've wanted to buy a drone forever. No reason, really, just seemed cool. I had a pile of cheap gyro-helicopters and universally crashed them on the first flight. Needless to say, my fear of immediately crashing a $1000 drone was what held me back. When the Mavic was released, I decided to give it a try. It was less $ than previous DJIs and was touted as "easy to fly." I couldn't agree more. My Mavic arrived a few days ago after ordering in October. DJI apparently had a big problem keeping up with the demand. In the meantime I watched 7 million youtube videos and got even more excited. The build quality is equivalent to an apple product. High-end materials, everything just works. Being petrified of crashing, I read and re-read the manuals before flight. It was totally unnecessary, because the Mavic flies itself. Not completely true - I'm glad I read the manual because it gave me a little confidence, but I was still nervous. My first flight was inside my office. I had NEVER flown a "real" quadcopter before, and I was able to guide it around corners, into my colleague's office (sorry Mike), and even up a stairway. The controls are intuitive and seem to respond just as you intend - if you mash the forward, the Mavic rips forward; if you finesse, it crawls. The Mavic is much quieter than I expected. I have seen some Phantoms around, and they sound like weedwhackers. The mavic is a lower hum. Still not sneaky-quiet, but not as offensive as I expected. I could see using this in a crowd (don't because it's dangerous) without people really noticing. The video quality is really good. I have not uploaded anything to my computer for editing, but for a novice I was impressed by the sharpness and color saturation. I am a camera geek so I was a little suspicious of DJI's claims, but my initial take is that the camera is really, really good for the size. I have flown the Mavic 3 times in past day, and tried out the active track, which worked once, didn't work the other time. On that, however, I was standing on icy snow with my back to the bright sun, so the camera was definitely getting blinded. when I tried it in better light it was much easier. The app download was a little confusing - the Apple App store has two versions of DJI GO (3 and 4). Get 4. It works well, and easily. The most recent Mavic user manual from DJI says to get 4, otherwise I would not have known. Again, I have literally never used anything like this, and I was able to get the app synced to the controller/drone and up and running in no time. Overall, this is an absolute must if you're like me and have been holding out or on the fence. I can't wait to bring it along on vacations, or even just in the back yard. My wife has never touched an RC anything and was able to take off, zip around the house, and land with ease. Highly recommended!

    DJI Mavic Pro: Portable, Professional, Unbeatable

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I own four DJI drones: Two Phantom 4 Professionals, One Phantom Three Professional, and the Mavic Pro. I am a professional videographer and an experienced cinematographer. The ONLY drones that I will buy are made by DJI, the leader in drone technology. If you compare other drones to the DJI series of drones, the other brands are absolutely worthless compared to DJI drones. Other drones have a range of less than one mile... some will only fly a few hundred yards away from the remote control. DJI drones have an average range of 4.5 miles! The cameras on DJI drones are FAR superior to every other brand of drone, and Hollywood professional cinematographers ONLY use DJI products (pros use the DJI Inspire 2 drone). The Mavic is a rock steady, high resolution (4K) capable, and definitely maneuver better than other drones in its price range. The features are endless, and since they are so portable, they are often used by professionals when they need to access places that would be difficult to reach with a larger drone. Although the camera on the Mavic is 4K, and takes beautiful video and photos, it's not quite as good as the DJI Phantom 4 Professional, which features a full size imaging chip which can capture beautiful footage in near darkness. That being said, the Mavic Pro can deliver beautiful, professional looking footage without sacrificing the professional level of quality. The range is 4.4 miles, and it has a top speed of around 40 MPH. There are over 10 different flight modes that automate your flight and allow you to get cinema quality footage. When I'm not using my Phantom 4 Pro, I use my Mavic Pro. DJI currently holds 80% of the drone market, and for good reason. The quality of their drones are exponentially better than any other brand. As an experienced professional drone cinematographer, I recommend the Mavic to anyone who is looking to start a business taking aerial photos and videos of real estate, aerial landscapes, and perform structure inspections. The drone industry is growing by billions of dollars every year, so now is the time to get into the business. I recommend starting with the Mavic Pro, and once you become a proficient drone operator, you can upgrade to one of DJI's professional level drones. Enjoy your flying, and stay safe!

    wish I had purchased mavic first before the spark

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    Whenever I enter into some new area of interest there is a lot of hand-wringing and review reading and general all around edumacating myself to figure out which is the right fit for me. I was going through a spell when I let that approach lapse and ended up buying the first drone someone recommended me and I wish I had done due diligence first. Not sure if I can mention by name the bad drones but whatever their name is Legion for they are many so just be wary and worried when buying but eventually I bought the DJI phantom four before the mavic and it's a great drone and made me fall in love with quadcopters in the way that Rosaline I think was her name gets Romeo to fall in love initially but ultimately it was not the right drone for me. Not Too large but not very portable (The cAmera images are better than my shots from Mavic though), so then I went with the DJI spark because it is cheaper than the mavic and i regret the choice because I was charging all these expenses to work anyway because we were using these drones for bird control and also security Patrol in an agricultural setting where I can simply program flight paths for the phantom and the drone and get back to work planting vegetables but yiu can't do that with the spark (although you CAN wave at the spark and other hand gestures repeatedly and increasingly more frantically as the drone hovers placidly in front of and above you blinkly passively without response as your boss and your irrigators watch) the spark is a lot of money to be putting down and too limited now. I cannot even recommend it as an entry-level even though it had a lot going for it it has a maddening system of pairing or actually not pairings with your phone to the remote control to the drone itself and I can't recommend it to anyone unless you área patient and/or can hack into the mainframe of a... well anyway I strongly suggest foregoing the gimmicky spark (sorry I am being hard in what is actually a pretty good drone with a decent camera but if yiu can't pair the remote you can't fly it unless you hurl it upward into the heavens in anger) and instead I recommend going with the mavic which just... works. It works. Blah blah blah lots of other words and observations to go but yeah the mavic is solid. A little sexy even but not like too much like you're trying to compensate for anything it's just form following function and it is lean and it just works. It is well-made, flexible, quite literally, I can fold it like an origami swan it can fit in a small Day pack with extra battery and charger remote. I use it with iPad mini but you have to get an adapter for that to fit. I recommend get as fast a san disk as you can. The normal ones they go too slow. Also I recommend learning the law of the land because it's a changing.also if you flip the drone upside down it falls asleep just like a chicken goes into a stupor. I'm telling you this because its helpful worse case scenario it's go to know how to shut a drone down in a controlled manner because at some point you will want to impress a girl and show her your new toy it's NOT a toy ok it's for work and that's not the point you are talking and you wanted to make a positive impression and you're feeling desperate and her middle name is Alexandra and you're already trying too hard anyway so you boot up the mavic but you didn't give it time to gets its bearings first which it does need to do and it wouldn't hurt you either to do the same before operating machinery about people have at 45 mph but if yiu just switch it on and gun it up it will lift off but the drone can start to wander and if in a last ditch effort you just grab it by the bottom it will get reallly feisty. It actually is programmed to turn on the boosters I think and try to break free from your grip and louder anyway just flip of the wrist and drone upside down tummy up it wil respond goes to sleep immediatlely aaaand.... scene. What else? Buy the charger that can Charge three battery simultaneously. Again follow the law and be mindful of the fact that we are in the formative years of drones for consumer market and if yiu are reckless and cause a wreck then lawmakers have to go make laws that limit the rest of us who are more responsible and so it goes and so it gives so please always remember when you put the drone on sport mode at the park: Sometimes less is more.

    So THAT'S what a good drone flies like...

    The Mavic is actually my third drone / quadcopter and I've had it for about a month now. I'd purchased a very cheap Syma drone to see if I liked droning - I mean flying a drone, not going on and on like I am now :) With the cheap Syma it turns out I did not like it at all. It couldn't handle any wind to speak of, the controls were alternately too sensitive and too sluggish, and I have to admit that I lost interest pretty quickly. A few months later a spiffy little thing called the Micro Drone caught my eye. It was much better, though I did manage to bust up eight of the tiny props in the first few days. Despite the littered wreckage of buster props I decided I'd give something a little more substantial a go. Initially I was considering the DJI Spark, but by the time I added the remote control it was close enough in price to the Mavic - which has a much better camera and longer flight time. Flying it could not be easier. Charge the batteries, go outside - the Mavic has two GPS systems to manage its exact position with almost frightening accuracy - do a quick calibration of the inertial movement sensors and compass, connect your phone, and tap the auto take off button in the DJI Go app. The drone takes off and hovers about four feet off the ground waiting for you. Tap the auto land button and it will settle down to the ground on its own. There you go. The first nerve wracking flight is over, now you can concentrate on having fun with it. I tested mine in a local park - a non-State park because Texas state parks are no fly zones - and looking at the video I shot I was hard pressed to believe that it wasn't coming from a tripod because it's perfectly still thanks to the camera gimbal which instantly corrects the image if the Mavic has to deal with a winds. The Mavic is equipped with forward pointing object avoidance sensors to help keep you from crashing. There's a pair of downward facing sensors to aid in return to home and auto landing. Through the DJI Go app you can activate several "Intelligent Flight Modes" which include "Follow" - the ability to select a person or object and have the drone follow them, "Orbit" - the ability to have the drone fly a circle around a person or object, "Terrain Tracking" - keep the drone at a specific distance from the ground as it flies, and a bunch more. I sound like a sales pitch I know, but I really love this thing. There's a huge online community where you can find tons of suggestions, tutorials, and technical assistance, plus just tons of beautiful videos shot from Mavics.

    Totally Impressed!

    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I'm a first-time quadcopter owner and like most people I read multiple reviews and watched tons of review videos before deciding on a quad, I decided to go with the Mavic Pro instead of the Phantom 4, the portability was the deciding factor along with the fact that the Mavic outranges the Phantom by a mile. I personally like everything about the Mavic, it's incredibly stable even in high winds and is very easy to fly. My very first flight I recorded during the majority of the time and only got 15 minutes of flight time, not the 25-28 minutes I was expecting. I started out with the "Beginner Mode" which only allows a distance of 98' away, that mode was quickly halted opting for the regular mode. I flew the quad upwards to 317' to record a sunrise, it was awesome! Recorded the sunrise in tripod mode and the Mavic was incredible, no movement at all at 317'!! Haven't had it long enough to try all the recording modes, looking forward to them too! The controller chirped the low battery warning and I decided to try the "Return to Home", wow, hard to believe that it landed within an inch from where it lifted off, remarkable! I had a landing pad, that's how I knew it was within an inch! The batteries charge time is a little over an hour, glad I purchased a couple extra. If you're trying to decide, the Mavic Pro is a no-brainer, you won't be disappointed! Thank you Best Buy for finally getting me my Mavic!

    There are two models. The first Model was flawed.


    Ok. I read reviews on every product before I buy. I have been watching mavic pro videos on youtube for over a month getting myself prepared for my purchase. I was happy to show off to my police friends. My from my Chief on down were impressed!!! I made my little drone that could do some amazing things. But 2 days later while admiring my beautiful Mavic pro and began to look how everything was connected to make this drone work. Low and behold on closer inspection the back of the frame on the left hand side had been tightened too much during manufacturing and had a stress point hair line crack from where the screw went in splintering into the leg. Then I took a look at the frame and he had been screwed down so tight that it warped the frame. Heart broken and upset I call Best Buy to see about a replacement and there was none. But they found one for me across the bay. Then I go into my paperwork to look at warranties and look at what I found. Dji refresh card that has to be activated within 48 hours of activating the drone!!!! I'm 8 hours past the 48 hour deadline! So i'm left with no choice but to return the drone. As soon as I activated my replacement I try to activate Dji Refresh because I want to protect this one. And the site keeps rejecting my payment because of and address error. I put every number in my zip code including the last four digits. I go around and around for 2 days with customer svc chat!!!! It was frustrating to no end. I now I have 74 hours to activate refresh but I'm not. I'm going to Take the Mavic Pro back and get the Phantom 4 Professional. Now for the Mavic Review. It's SCARY LOSING SIGHT of this drone. I have gone into full blown panic mode when traveling high and beyond eye site!!! Thank God for return home and set it a height that can clear any potential obstacles. I have mine set at 120 feet. It's responsive and once you get above 200 feet you can barely hear it and at the 300 you hear nothing but ambient noise. Keep in mind you can't zoom in while filming in 4K you can only zoom in 1080P. It's a great first drone but it doesn't meet my needs. I need a drone that can take detailed videos and pictures. This one can but not as good as the Phantom 4 pro. I will be getting another one after I get my P4 Pro just for fun and the easy set up and launch. OH I AMOST FORGOT. The Mavic pro comes in two models. The one with the exposed black wire at the back legs is the first gen. The one with the wire covered is the 2cd gen. ACTIVATE DJI REFRESH AS SOON AS YOU ACTIVATE THIS DRONE!!!!!

    great drone but DJI warrenty is bad


    first of all i wouldnt recommend this drone because of the company the makes it. dealing with DJI u must have another drone handy to have fun with it. give DJI about a good month to repair or diagnosis your drone. Everysingle time u call, be prepared to be onlhold for 45minutes on average. This is my story when calling DJI. . . . . . called DJI suport for my mavic pro. drone lost connecting with remote and crashed onto the group. drone was only 3 ft into the air. however the gimbel clear case fell off and the mounting braket on the vibration pad broke so the gimble isnt stable. DJI customer rep told me yesterday on 6/12 i can have the drone shipped to them within 2 business days they will send me shipping label box and bubble wrap to secure the drone and remote controller along with a box. representative tells me go to UPS store and just show them label they will provide you box and bubble wrap. i went there to find out only the shipping label is covered no box or bubble wrap is given out. i had to then rush back home to get a box and secure the package the item. second i told him im leaveing town on 6/23 next friday. will i get the drone back by then. she tell me it take 2 days for them to receive drone. 3 days to diagnosis the drone and for repairs and another 2 days to send drone back to me so i will definantly get the drone before 6/23. i said r u sure, i live in NY im going to Fl on the 23 and i bought this drone specifically for this vacation. she said yes absolutely sir. thank god i wasn't flying up high in the sky where the dront fell into the waters, on on people. i was at the park that current day. there were 1000 kids running all over the place. now as i walk out UPS store i say the label/recipt the ups clerk gave me says ups ground. i said wait a min. this isnt no 2 day shipping. i decided to call UPS they told me its 4-7 business days shipping. i even tracked the shipping it says it will arrive to DJI in CA on 6/19 which is monday. so chances are my vacation will be ruined because of DJI i bought 3 additional batterypacks a $120 bookbag for drone in total i spend $1500 plus tax from DJI to be lied to. i called back and the rep was nice but he says whats done is already done so we have to move forward and he will do everything in his power to get the drone bak to my by the 23rd. \ So chances are if the drone is arriving to the facility on the 19th i prabaly wont get the done back on that friday the 23rd. so i was lied to about the box and bubble wrap. i was lied to about the delivery time for the item to arrive to CA facility within 2 business days. i was potentially lied about getting my drone back to me on the 23rd. friday this drone is only 1 weeks old and used it twice and for it to loose connection to the remote and cause a crash is unexceptable. now my vacation will be ruined because i probably wont have a drone as i had planned since earlier this year. i had planned to buy that drone and save for about 2 months. and now DJI company as a whole has lied to me on top of that. my son is very upset he keeps asking about the drone and it hurt me that i had told him a lie becasue DJI lied to me. I sopke to 2 addition users and they said all they can do is try there best. I NEED MY DRONE BY THE 23RD AS I WAS PROMISSED BY A DJI REP. A NEW UNIT DUE TO THE FAILED COMMUNICATION.

    Solid drone for first time flyers

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    Overall very impressed with its capabilities, stability, and video/camera definition. After a short quiz, and agreeing to terms and conditions, the controller and app unlocks, enabling flight mode. With a simple push of joysticks, the drone was up in the air. Commandeering it was relatively straightforward and very responsive to throttle. The information presented on the remote and DJI app can be overwhelming at first, but knowing what each set of numbers represent makes flight that much more meaningful (from drone speed, distance, camera exposure, drone and remote battery levels, etc). The reviews I read prior to purchasing this drone were pretty spot-on, and like many others who have flown this drone before, the DJI Mavik Pro did not disappoint. Of course there are flaws (eg. inability to sense obstacles directly on top, to the sides, and behind, inability to fly in the rain, extremes of temperatures, delicate gimbal mechanism), but they are far outweighed by its pros (incredible flight range of a few miles, high definition photos and videos, multiple ways of tracking moving subjects, solid feel and looks, portability, ease of use, live streaming, cinematic modes and first person views, the list goes on). Definitely on the pricier end, but well worth the price for taking photography to another level in more ways than one ;)
